Hospital Data and Reporting


Community Benefits Program

In response to the growing interest in the types and scope of community benefit services provided by Maryland Hospitals, the Maryland General Assembly passed House Bill 15 during the 2001 Legislative Session, which created a new responsibility under the Health Services Cost Review Commission (see Health General §19-303, Maryland Annotated Code). Under the law, HSCRC is responsible for collecting hospital community benefit information from individual hospitals to compile into a publicly available statewide Community Benefit Report (CBR). This larger statewide document contains summary information as well as individual hospital reports.​
